Become a Supplier – NHS Supply Chain session

Join Cumbria Business Growth Hub and Martin Toomey, Sustainability Manager with NHS Supply Chain to find out more about the benefits of working with NHS Supply Chain, where opportunities are promoted and the services they look to procure.

NHS Supply Chain brings certain benefits to suppliers that no other route to market can provide.

They currently deliver the following to our suppliers:

Reduced point of sales, a single route to market for suppliers instead of knocking on 240 trust doors. This is a key benefit for SMEs in particular.
Specialist procurement conversations with suppliers. The Category Tower Service Providers (CTSPs) have buying teams which have specialist knowledge of their product areas.
Regional distribution centres with over 9000 stocked lines which allow for increased Supply Chain resilience.
Suppliers are involved in the CTSP development of category and sourcing strategies, which are approved by our cross functional teams.
NHS Supply Chain has a dedicated Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) team who engage regularly with suppliers, face to face and at a variety of national and regional events.

The NHS work with a wide range of business sectors and sizes, this event is open to any business interested in finding out more.

Martin is a Fellow of Chartered Institute of Procurement with over 42 years’ experience in Procurement and Supply Chain Management, focused on Sustainability and Ethical trade for the past 17 years.
